Commemorative Coins worth anything?

Hi all, iv recently inherited some commemorative disney coins and was wondering if they are worth anything. I spent hours on the internet with little result of finding information. according to the paper work they are .999 pure sliver, made in 1990-1991 most of them with a relatively low serial numbers (in the hundreds out of 7,500 5,000 and 10,000). I also have a set of E.T. coins from 1982, they were made by rarities mint. Any information will be useful. also would the coin’s weight be equivalent to current market value of sliver or no (please explain why if you know)? thank you
I just got done going through all of them, most of them say .999 Pure Silver one troy ounce, a few say .999 Fine Silver one troy ounce or .999 silver one troy ounce on the coins itself. the paper work says COMPOSITION: .999 Pure or Fine Silver and WEIGHT: 1 troy ounce (31.103 grams).
P.S. just noticed that my T9 put Sliver instead of Silver sorry about that.

    It is very difficult to find professionals to determine value in antiques or specialty items such as yours. I have encountered few challenges similar to yours.
    Few things I can suggest.
    1. There is a TV show called antique road show and they have professionals rate many different items based on their insurance value.
    2. Find a nearby pawn shop. Those places are notorious in finding the value of items and they might be able to help.

    They are just worth the scrap silver content. Weigh the coins and multiply by $43 (£27) per ounce. Deduct about 10% for dealer’s profit. If you weigh the coins in grams don’t forget there are 31.1 grams to the Troy ounce (not 28 odd as lots of people make this mistake)

    Are the .999 silver or are the .999 silver CLAD. Clad means they are cheap metal slugs cloated in a very small amount of silver. I’ve noticed a lot of the ‘commemorative’ coin ads on TV try to sneak that in and hope people won’t notice. If they are .999 silver, then they are worth their weight in melt value, $43.21 an ounce today.

    Put them on ebay. Their value is what the auction ends at. At a minimum they have silver scrap value…. it’s actually quite high.

    I have a lot of Rarities mint Disney coins, they used to sell $20-$35 when silver was less than $10/once. but with the current decline in collectable prices and high price of silver, most of them just go for scrap price. What coins do you have
